I have to say I kinda hope the fad wanes a bit. We live 10 minutes from victory and we use to
head out there once a week or so, however in the last couple of years it's gotten so crowded
that you can'...

I sometimes mix my imperial ipa and my session ipa to enjoy a regular ipa. My keezer has four
taps so this technique allows me to cover all my hoppy bases and also have two taps for other
Posted in thread: Bonita Hopplebum - Cascade/Columbus IPA on 01-17-2016 at 05:37 PM
I like it, been looking to make use of the of the cheaper hops in my IPAs. Even centennial has
gotten pricey this year. Think I'll be brewing this one tomorrow.
Posted in thread: Buying new fermenters on 12-13-2015 at 02:14 PM
I've personally never felt the need to watch fermentation and have been quite content with
buckets. I would like a solution to minimize oxidation and while conicals might look cool
they're a bit out o...

Posted in thread: National Hombrew Day!!! on 05-02-2015 at 04:05 PM

already mashing is...

I'm currently in the process of doing a basement brewery build and as costs build up I'm

Fwiw I've always had a huge hot break with my beers until I did an amber with marris otter for
the base malt, which resulted in a very weak hot break. If since noted that batches with large
Posted in thread: First double batch day going well so far on 01-19-2015 at 12:53 AM
I do double batches every now then to save time, 5 hours for one vs 7 for two. I will say I
hate doing double batches though. I'm busy for 7 hours straight vs mostly drinking and relaxing
for five hou...
Posted in thread: Thoughts and experiences using fermcap s or other silicone based antifoamers? on 11-19-2014 at 01:36 PM
I use infant gas drops in all my starters (same thing as fermcap but half the price and
available everywhere). Great stuff, I can make a 2 liter starter in a 2 liter flask. I've never
had any issues w...
